WHO ARE ELIGIBLE EMPLOYEES GET FOR FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE?
According to the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, eligible employees can get up to 26 weeks per 12-month period to care for an ill or injured service member (FMLA only).
Family and medical leave laws also prohibit retaliation or discrimination against an employee for exercising rights under FMLA or CFRA or for giving information or testimony about alleged violations of California or federal family and medical leave laws.
The most common mistake is failing to grant family and medical leave as required by federal and state law.
An employee may take up to 12 workweeks of family/medical leave in a 12-month period. He/she may take all 12 weeks at once, or may take leave in shorter increments of hours, days or weeks.
An employee may take up to 26 weeks per 12-month period to care for an ill or injured service member under the FMLA.
